Summary :

A master of hard science in the medium of storytelling, Gene Wolfe has crafted a story in "Procreation" that examines the question: "What if a scientist in a lab somewhere created an entire miniature universe that could be seen under a microscope?" The story is based on theories that our universe could have been created out of Nothing by quantum tunneling, a concept which becomes a literary conceit in Wolfe's hands.
